Good morning.  It is nice to finally see the sun shine today.  This is always a morale booster for both our students and staff!

Our annual STEAM/GEEF EXPO will be held at the high school next Wednesday (5/24) from 6:00-7:30.  Come and get inspired and experience hands-on demonstrations celebrating student discoveries and achievements from all three buildings!

This Friday, the PTA is holding an Ice Cream Fundraiser (with Jordan’s Ice Cream!) at Funspot from 2:30-9:00.  All people need to do is get yummy ice cream and they will give the PTA a percentage of the ice cream sales.  Friday night is Gilford PTA Night!

But before you get your fill of ice cream, get your fill of wonderful music tomorrow night at our Monster Band Concert.  This is held in the GHS Auditorium beginning at 7:00.

Congratulations to our Spanish/French teacher, Stephanie Masters, for reaching the semi-final round for the state of New Hampshire’s Teacher of the Year!  A committee from the NHDOE will be here on the 24th to interview parents, teachers, students and, of course, Mrs. Masters.

I have attached two flyers from Laconia High School’s HUOT Career and Technical Center.  One is in regards to a summer camp for girls, “Girls Technology & Career Camp,” which runs from June 26-June 30 (current 7th & 8th graders only).  And the other, for both boys and girls, is the “Summer Construction Camp” which runs from July 10-July 14.  Check them out!

Eighth grade students are currently doing their “impact testing” for concussions.  This is mandatory for students wishing to play sports in high school and a good idea for everybody as it gives GHS nurse Meg Jenkins a “base-line” in case of a head injury that takes place at school (whether it be related to sports or not).  Students take these tests on a computer.

Events for next week:

  • PTA Poetry Night - Wednesday, May 17th at 6:00 at the Gilford Public Library

  • Spring Choral Concert - Thursday, May 18th at 7:00 in the GHS Auditorium

  • Early Release - On Friday, May 19th; students will be dismissed at 11:55 (to coincide with GHS dismissal)

  • Grades 6-8 Dance - Friday, May 19th from 7:00-8:30.

Thank you and soak up the sun (while it lasts)!
